What a great day! Thanks to God first for making it that way and you all for praying it that way. Both twins still have acceptable bili ranges and got to stay off the lights all day. He is getting 16cc’s of food each feeding and she is getting 13cc’s of food, a far cry from the 1cc they got after birth. They are still on the sipap machines but hardly a bradycardia event to be had today. Along with that they were both tested for infections today and both tests came back negative. The Doctor told us that their apnea episodes were just a result of them being so premature and as they got bigger the apneas (brady’s) would fix themselves. God is good. Also today they were taken off their lipids and TPNs (IV nutrition) and are getting 100% of their nutrition from a mix of their mother’s milk and a fortifier for added growth. That means their picc lines will be removed tomorrow. Also today they got another brain scan and once again both came perfectly normal. Again, praise. After tonight’s weigh in Jeremiah is now up to 2lbs 13oz and Joleigh weights 2lbs 6oz. Because of Jeremiahs weight he was able to be held swaddled in a blanket and held in Jen’s arms not skin to skin. It was a great feeling.

Thanks again for all who have been praying. Again today we can see those prayers being answered. God bless.
